    Got the neutral safety switch replaced, the original has been broken. Cleaned up all the contact points, adjusted it and now can start it in park and have reverse lights again

    Picked up a cup holder console today for 40 bucks, some full time hub covers and some center caps that should clean up well. I haven’t been able to find any decent full time hub covers so figured I’d better grab them while I could

    Cool! I've had a few Z34's myself. A '91 and two 93's. Oh, and a '92 with a 5-speed, but that was just a totalled parts car.

    I put similar wheels on my red '93 too, but they were the 16x8's from a Grand Prix. With 245/50 tires. It really made the car feel more sure-footed through the corners.

    Yeah these are the wheels off a bonneville didn’t realize the backspacing was different until I put them on, I’ll probably purchase the Grand Prix wheels when I find a good set. I like them, I’ve done quite a bit of work on the z34 it was a basket case when I bought it.

    I see you got rid of the spoiler on the back. I have the problem on my blazer when it rains the back window is covered in water. The spoiler is supposed to be upright to catch wind and keep it clear in rain. Like on this suburban. They're super useful.

    The one I had was some junky aftermarket one that didn’t do anything but look ugly, I don’t mind the stock ones though

    Yeah the originals are really nice just most people took them off or turn them the wrong way. Now it's almost impossible to find a half decent one.
